2025 Jackson Powers (Pro Skills Cassada)
Big man Jackson impressed with his postwork, he squared up and took his time to make the move he wanted. A natural rebounder, Jackson found the ball countless times for putbacks and finished efficiently inside with his soft hands and touch. Big man also showed he could spot up and make the outside shot from the elbow or top of the key
2025 Will Jones (Pro Skills Cassada)
This is a team that has a very strong core built upon players who step up to do anything asked of them. Will fits into this mold well, supplying numerous different things for his team on any given occasion. He stars in his role as a rebounder and team player, moving the ball and working the offense, another smart patient guard for this crew
2025 Jonah Drye (Crown Academy)
Although the shot looked a bit unconventional, Jonah was pouring in the three balls with confidence. He looked for his shot and set up for it well. Knocked a lot of shots down when his team needed them to stay in the game, finished with a game-high 30 points!
2023 Russell Hawkins (Charlotte Royals)
The game started slow, but Hawkins started to heat up from behind the arc and paced the Royals scoring. Played with an intensity that was extremely tough to match, that fighting spirit fueled his shotmaking and rhythm throughout the game
2023 Dexter Townsend (Charlotte Kings)
Dexter lined up on the other side to match up against Hawkins of the Charlotte Guards in a great backcourt battle. Dexter has good size and uses his length to ascend on the pullups, practically kept his team in the game by himself throughout the first half with his shotmaking ability.
2025 Yasir Hall (Save Sports)
Just like last night, Yasir is showing off his versatility and providing for his team in any way they need it. Runs the court and handles the ball well, which allows him to stretch the floor as the 4 for his team. Tough matchup for younger bigs who can’t move their feet and stay in front
2025 Joshua Dorsette (Save Sports)
I feel like I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen Joshua make a bad read or turn the ball over. Makes such an impact with his IQ and feel for the game, finding teammates and managing the looks their offense gets. It’s a rare talent to see in such a young guard, but he simply values the ball and refuses to let defenders rush him into mistakes
